I have worked across various clinical psychological services, such as New Life Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association, the Hong Kong Police Force, and the University of Hong Kong’s Centre of Development and Resources for Students. These experiences enabled me to support people facing a wide range of difficulties, such as anxiety, low mood, suicidal behaviour, and neurodevelopmental conditions (Autism spectrum disorder (ASD), Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and Specific Learning Disorders), and academic stress. Apart from individual therapy, I’ve led cycles of group Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and Mindful Parenting. I am also an active researcher who worked at the Centre for Suicide Research and Prevention, and my passion for psychoeducation extends to my work as teaching assistant for the course Suicide: Risks, Research, and Realities at the University of Hong Kong.
As an international trainee clinical psychologist who grew up in Hong Kong and studied in Sydney, I am confident in working with people from different backgrounds. I offer sessions in English, Mandarin, and Cantonese.
What is a Trainee Clinical Psychologist?
A Trainee Clinical Psychologist undergoes 3 years of training to become a qualified Clinical Psychologist. The doctoral level program involves clinical placements, research, and academic assessment. During clinical placements, trainees will carry out assessment and treatment under the supervision of qualified Clinical Psychologists.
Throughout my clinical placement at Avenue Therapies, I am confident in supporting clients across the lifespan with difficulties of varying complexity and severity. I am well informed of the most recent evidence based practices and receive regular evaluations to ensure that the quality of my work is maintained at the highest standard.
I work with clients with a range of presentations, including different anxiety presentations and low mood/depression, suitable for my level of training. Please get in touch if you wish to seek more information about working with a Trainee Clinical Psychologist.
I aim to create a non-judgmental and open space for clients to express their emotions and concerns. I also prioritise making that space a safe place for people to freely share their cultural, religious, and social identities. I believe that all clients are capable of positive change and highly value journeying with them to move towards their full potential. Therefore, I am passionate about working collaboratively with my clients to help them develop new narratives, strengths, and directions.
The Models I Work With
I respect that every client is unique in the values they hold and the circumstances they face. Therefore, I aim to adopt a flexible approach by tailoring therapy to match each client’s preferences and needs. I tend to work with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), but also draw on elements of other therapies (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, systemic therapy, and psychodynamic therapy) to best support clients.
I currently offer both face to face and virtual appointments at a discounted rate. I work with people in the age range 16+. My clinic is based in Ealing, West London. I offer appointments on Mondays/Wednesdays/Fridays.
